Caroline Waters - "Heartfelt & engaging"
“With a stylistic comfort zone nestled snuggly between George Gershwin, Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones, Caroline Waters is one of those rare artists who have the ability to transform pain and heartache into strength and a love of life that resonates throughout their music. Graced with a clear and tender voice, the multi-instrumentalist is part sultry jazz diva, part international minstrel and part idealistic folkster." Cat Johnson, Santa Cruz Weekly
Platinum Jazz Entertainer, Caroline Waters, is a fierce advocate for Equality and Human Rights. Accompanying herself on guitar, piano, percussion and sometimes violin, she shares intensely heartfelt pieces from her extraordinary life adventure. Waters is currently promoting her new double album and musical memoir, Finding Venus. Finding Venus tells the story of how Caroline was able to recover and find a sense of identity and purpose after a near death accident that left her with post traumatic amnesia at age eighteen.
Caroline Waters can be booked as a solo artist/ keynote presenter and also with additional world class musicians and actors, such as Irina Chirkova or Aristides Rivas on cello, Katisse Buckingham on sax/ flute/ beat-box, Abraham Laboriel or Jennifer Leitham on bass, Chris Wabich or Mark Schulman on drums, J'Nae Fincannon, Aina O'Kane and Gary Imhoff on vocals, to mention a few.
"This is art. High art. It is also a compassionate, realistic study of what unsolved mysteries can do to a human life. How do we let go? How do we move on? How do we smile again? We find Venus." A.J. Llewellyn
Caroline starred in her first movie at age three and often performed as a duo with her legendary entertainer dad, Per Asplin. She toured with the National Theatre of Norway at age seven and eight, had a musical written for her to star in at nine, introduced Danny Kaye to Norway at ten, hosted her own TV-show at twelve, performed for the International Olympic Committee in Switzerland at fourteen, in a bid to bring the Winter Olympics to Lillehammer. By age sixteen she had become a celebrated Jazz entertainer and musical ambassador for her home country, Norway, with more than 2000 shows to her name. As a voice over artist, she is best know for her roles as Christopher Robin and Roo in Norwegian film versions of Winnie The Poo.
Waters graduated top of her class at The Dick Grove School of Music in Los Angeles, where she also received the prestigious Vocal Achievement Award. She released her first solo album, Compassion, in memory of Stefanie Stroh, shortly thereafter. The search for Stefanie, who mysteriously vanished without a trace in the Nevada desert, was instrumental in helping Caroline find her true calling. Since then, Caroline has been a fierce advocate for equality and human rights, promoting child abuse awareness and assisting in the search for missing people.
After receiving a Permanent US Resident status as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability in the Arts, Caroline established her music production- and publishing companies in Los Angeles (California), Oslo (Norway), Åmål (Sweden) and is frequently touring. Waters' productions, so far, include ten albums, music for ten films and two one-woman shows, two musical comedies, one musical thriller and numerous live shows.
As part of her commitment to human rights and freedom of expression, Caroline offers keynote presentations, seminars and private sessions in Vocal Freedom, a program she initially designed to help people heal from PTSD. Today Vocal Freedom is a powerful transformative experience for all who wish to free their expression and enhance their performance ability. For those who wish to heal physical and emotional issues on a deeper level, Waters is now accepting clients as an Accredited Journey Practitioner via Zoom.
